Hey guys!

My mother in law had just finished making, and gave me pictures of, the "In It To End It" Story Quilt she made that we are raffling off to raise money for the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation to help find a cure for people with diabetes (as many of you know, my son has Type 1). I wasn't sure if it would be appropriate to tell you all about it here, but I know I have talked to many of you before about my son having diabetes and that our whole family are advocates as well as spend time raising awareness and funds to help find a cure, so I thought I'd mention real quick about one of the major events Team Lenny (my son's team name) is currently doing between now and May 19th, the day of our local Diabetes Walkathon.

Below are what each square/color of the Story Quilt means:

THE STORY OF THE PATCHES

THE CROSS IN THE CENTER IS FOR THE FAITH THAT EVERYONE WITH DIABETES NEEDS TO MAKE IT THROUGH ANOTHER DAY

"IN IT TO END IT" THANK YOU TO TOM FOR HIS WORDS

ONE RED PATCH, IS THE BLOOD HAS BEEN USED ONE DROP AT A TIME FOR ALL THE BLOOD SUGAR TESTS.

WAVES, ARE FOR THE UPS AND DOWNS IN THE BLOOD SUGAR NUMBER

ROSE, FOR ALL THOSE ROSEY CHEEKS WHEN THE BLOOD SUGAR IS TO HIGH

BEARS, FOR TOYS AND PRACTICE SHOTS.

EASTER AND CHRISTMAS PATCHES ARE EVERY HOLIDAY THAT A DIABETIC GETS TO SEE FROM THE BEGINING OF THE YEAR TO THE END AND EVERYTHING IN THE MIDDLE .

GREEN, FOR ALL THE MONEY THAT IS NEEDED FOR RESEARCH TO FIND A CURE

BROWN, IS BECAUSE WE ALL NEED TO STAY GROUNDED

WHITE, PURITY

BAND-AIDS, REMINDS US DIABETES IS A MEDICAL CONDITION

HORSES, REPRESENT THE STRENTH NEEDED EVERYDAY

LEGS, FOR ALL THE DIABETES WALK THAT GO ON EVERYWHERE

BLACK, FOR THE HOLE THAT WE SOMETIMES WOULD LIKE TO CRAWL INTO

HEARTS AND VALENTINES ALL AROUND THE QUILT, TO KNOW THAT LOVE IS ALL AROUND

Story Quilt Measures 60 inches x 48 inches.

I think she did an excellent job on the Story Quilt! What do you all think?

(P.S. If you are interested in entering for a chance to win the Story Quilt, please DM me. We are auctioning it off both online, as well as offline on May 19th, the day of the Diabetes Walkathon.)

Glad you took him to the Dr. Praying he feels better.

Just booked our flight to Houston for DH's Easter break. Not nonstop, but for $120 savings per each of us, we can stop for an hour and a half in Atlanta. I was getting discouraged at the prices, but jumped on this fare when I saw it today. Now, to check out fares to Portland for sometime in the summer. We sooo wish the kids lived closer.

Went to the 911 Memorial with my boys today. I will post some pics when I get the chance. The memorial itself is very beautiful and well-planned. But I was completely shocked and turned off by so many of the visitors. It might well have been Mt. Rushmore or Old Faithful. People taking horrid touristy photos and seemingly not even noticing someone crying just feet away as he or she touched the name of their loved one. After reading so much about the proper mood and balance of the place, I was taken completely by surprise.
My HS friend's name happened to be in a sunny area so that's where all the tourists were standing and posing. I felt like screaming. Was practically a Jesus at the Temple moment. If I did not have my kids with me, I would have ranted to (at) someone. Instead, I will write to someone about this. There should be a little reminder, through signs, videos or by the people working here, what a MEMORIAL is.

Is there that same feeling at other memorials? I haven't been to ground zero, but I can't imagine being touristy there or at any memorial.


The best airfares I found yesterday were $398. Today, $239. I thought there was a catch somewhere that I was missing. If they go down between now and April, I'll be sad. I know, I just won't look anymore for a better deal. ;)

Yes, I have seen that type of behavior, though not quite to this degree, at memorials in DC. But it's really apples and oranges. Not only is this still fresh, but there are other unique factors here. In addition to being a memorial, it is a crime scene where 3000 innocent people were killed. Even sadder, it is a cemetery, as more than half of the victims have neve been identified. I think a large sign somewhere visible near the pools, reminding people of this, is in order.

MrsLidwell, your MIL did a great job on that quilt. A lot of work. Diabetes is a terrible thing to have, as are all autoimmune diseases.

Jen, hope your son is feeling better soon. That's good he didn't have appendicitis.

I'd heard that story about the flower. Amazing!

I've always seemed to have gotten good deals when booking short notice. Better than booking ahead usually.

Victor, so sorry to hear about your experience at the memorial. What a shame that people can't be more respectful. Those same people would probably think nothing of taking pictures of the Amish people, even though they hate people doing that to them.

Posted on the other thread after Jo posted a link to a new one, and I didn't see it. Here's my post from yesterday:

Wonderful picture, Ronnie. So sweet!

Marilyn, I'm glad you got the link to work.

Here's a cool video about an ice hotel in Sweden. I might have posted this last year or the year before. When I win the lottery I will go here for sure, just for the unique experience.

The weird thing about the Vietnam Memorial is that is was universally hated when it first opened. That is why they added the statues afterward. People compared it to walking into a tomb. But that is appropriate, I think.

I believe an oriental desighned the Vietnam one. Some clodds just dont get the whole experience. The feelings were orchestrated by the desighner I'm sure. Why do we always need a statue? They are so 17th century.

Jen.. hope everyone heals up quickly! Isn't it amazing how things come in THREE's?! LOL! I swear by that "rule" these days. Seems anytime one of my kids gets sick, 2 others in the house get it (rarely ever all 4 of us LOL! Usually its my kids first then hubby and by the time it reaches me, even though I'm the one taking care of them all... I either don't get it or get the milder end of it LOL!)... same can be said for us with things breaking around the house! One thing goes then 2 others break. What could have costed like $50 to fix just for one thing, add up to over $200 to fix all three! LOL!

victor.. I'm not sure about greens, as I don't usually plant them (my MIL does a lot of that kinda stuff I think), but I was wondering the same thing about veggies. More because I'm just itching to keep my hands in dirt, regardless of the fact that its February LOL! I've been debating on trying to start a few veggies indoors at the beginning of march... like peppers. I'm just trying really really hard to push away the temptation of it, mostly because I'm not entirely sure of exactly WHEN my hubby is going to be able to build my raised garden this spring, so I don't want to start things too terribly early in case he's not able to get it built until later than I hope. lol.

We learned that if you make the front fully aerodynamic it will either win or it will pop wheelies because of imperfections in the wheels. In order to win the big prize, performance has to be consistent.

Yeah, the cub scouts get all the fun. But i have to say, gender envy comes up at different ages and in different directions. When they were five years old and skating in ice shows, DS couldn't have a costume with feathers or much real excitement, and in the middle and early high school English curriculum, they stopped teaching classics, and he had to read "girl" books for school. Other compensations for a boy: Pinewood Derby, deep-frying turkeys in Boy Scouts, the ability to be stronger, faster and bigger, and gradually watching his world open up to him. Thank goodness as he got older his more "muscular" prose has been admired and nurtured by teachers, too.

Go Victor's son!

At this time, the boy is definitely the easiest. He's bit of a home body as he's learning Java and Linex (SP?)on his computer, but the girls are off enjoying trips to Boston's North End, cooking at someone's house (sometimes the mess is at ours) endless shopping and sleepovers, dates and double dates, sometimes invitations to rock climb, ski, sail, or do whatever dangerous sport is popular...not giving them money is about the only tether to earth and to our expecttion that they find jobs. And they're all good kids, too, who are thriving in school.

The time to be with our kids and guiding them is truly short and fleeting.

Pinewood Derby was one of those beautiful times for us.

Though they look a lot alike, the girls are different from one another. They do egg each other into adventures together, though. DD1 reads voraciously, has always tried to find a social problems to address herself, has strong relationships with teachers, piano teacher, and keeps in touch with international friends abroad, loves nature. She is a true polyglot, a language talent which happens in my family about every five generations. DD2 was the last to walk, throw, do math, etc. but when she starts something ooh la la! She's become a quick student so now she can manage to find all the happenings in teen age life and still maintain 1st honor roll and volunteer at a church daycare Since last year, she's had several boyfriends, and lots of adventures with her devil-may care attitude that we monitor constantly. She can do a translation of Virgil that can move one to tears, but she won't touch her violin. My kids are all truly feisty, independent spirits.

I'd love to hear about the personalities of other kids.

Rosemary, what a blessing to have 3 great kids! My own son was quiet & serious...the friends he made in elementary school, he still has...when he was 4 or 5, he would get mad if you told him to play...he would say he "worked"...he still has tons of projects ...started as a biology major... became a landscape architect, but may end up teaching vo-ag...my DH is probably wincing in heaven...Garret's oldest child, a girl, is just like him...the other 2 are totally different!

Problem is that the "bullies" are often victims, too. Massachusetts has a zero tolerance law that means automatic suspension from school for any kid found out to be a bully. There are some tragic stories about those reported "bullies" too, and even a few suicides out of a national list of outcomes. And the kid who tells can bear a big emotional burden because of what happens. I believe it's a bigger problem than these laws can address, and that aggression is considered by some to be a solution to problems. Prevention efforts often rely upon the seach for the "profile" of a killer-- a police method that does not have empirical support. There are other prevention efforts for training kids to recognize the difference between fantasy and reality, and others for training whole classrooms to be better problem-solvers. Sometimes those smaller solutions have more traction.

I like hearing about the miracle of how kids grow up and find happiness. Robin's DS sounds like a kid who is following his own compass. Bravo!

Love that, Victor! Speechus interruptus indeed! Heehee

Gee Mr. Wizard, how does it work? Police already know how to talk quicker and faster than the perp. Can it be that much better?

Glad you guys all loved that video.

I could use the speech-jamming gun on a few people myself. Wouldn't go over too big in our country, I think.

It seems there is no place to go for quiet and peace these days. I know cellphones are an important part of our culture but GD came to visit me and after 10 mins of listening to me half heartedly while TXTing I asked her to turn the thing off so we could have a conversation.
Guess its time for "phone etiquet (sp)"

I dont have a cell,just dont need to be available 24/7 to anyone. People become slaves to the things and wonder where controle of their lives went.

Yep, I hope a lot of people will scale back on their communications electronics in order to have "real" interactions.

We use our cell phone to make calls if necessary. Only our girls & a next door neighbor to use in emergencies have our number. It feels good to have it with us while traveling, but have never had to use it.

Sending out positive thoughts, prayers, and vibrations.

(I try to cover all the various belief systems...can't hurt, right?)

I do meditation every time before sleep; the mind is slowing down to alpha wavelengths, and (supposedly) helps both the sender and the receiver.

Best of energies, in any case, directed to our ailing friends, and friends of friends.

Love makes the Universe real.

Einstein said: "Remember your humanity, and forget the rest."

(I infer from that: love and caring are the key, material matters should be on the back burner.)


(edited for punctuation, so the imaginary english teacher in my head doesn't cringe.)
